In an article by Terry Anderson, Wendy Purnell published in the Hover Institute Journal, December 20, 2017. A quote follows:
"Colonial-era policies and paternalistic attitudes continue to restrict economic activity on reservations and most indigenous economies remain dependent on the federal government.
